The three hour ocean safari is the perfect trip for those who like to look and to touch. Spend your afternoon in the company of mother natures greatest ambassadors!
This trip is designed for people who like to stay in the boat and take in all the action. Perfect for single travelers, families and larger groups.
Imagine exploring an ancient "Jurassic Park" coastline, riddled with sea caves and cascading waterfalls. Your chance to experience whales circling below, maybe a family of Orcas, and eagles patrolling overhead, you will adventure in the most pristine conditions the Atlantic Ocean has to offer.
More than just whales, you will see it all on this tour. The sheer cliffs, exotic vegetation, the amazing seabirds, and if you're lucky a sunfish, jumping tuna, or even frolicing dolphins. Did we mention even the occasional leatherback sea turtle?!?!
All this and wide open seas leave the city feeling miles away.
1 - What should I bring? At Ocean Quest we like to make it as easy for you as possible so we have covered just about everything. The only thing you will want to make sure you have is clothing appropriate for the day; please ensure you have options for additional layers and rain gear as well as a warm hat and gloves. We request that all other items be left in your vehicle or locked in our office. One steadfast rule on our RHIB's is that you must assume anything you bring along will get wet!
2 - Should I bring my camera? Cameras are encouraged! However, please make sure it is waterproof. Also, make sure you have a way to secure it to your person. Last year alone we watched at least 3 GoGro cameras gently glide their way to the ocean floor with no way of recovering them.
3 - Is lunch provided? Ocean Quest will provide a snack, water, and a hot beverage for your trip.
4 - Is tipping the skipper/guides appropriate? Although it is not necessary to tip the crew, we are confident that you will be so thrilled with their efforts that you will want to! The crew works hard to ensure your adventure is safe, ecologically responsible, and fun. They really appreciate any showing of gratitude.
